Kwa-Zulu Natal & Surrounds

Banner-Durban

 

Kwazulu-Natal is known as the garden province of South Africa – with its sub-tropical climate, you can expect lush and hydrated valleys, washed by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

This is one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations, offering idyllic weather conditions, long golden beaches, abundant wildlife and historic battlefields. Battlefield tours, high-impact safaris and visits to traditional Zulu homesteads are but some of the activities which can be incorporated in your bespoke itinerary.

Its western section is marked by the spectacular Drakensberg mountain range, with several peaks well over 3 000 metres, and is famous for hiking and horse riding. The range has been awarded World Heritage status for its dramatic natural beauty and the wealth of San Bushman rock art found in its caves – the richest concentration on the continent of Africa.

Between the mountains and the humid, subtropical coastline is savannah grassland, but there are also areas of indigenous forest along the coast.

The final stretch of South African coastline is a wilderness wonderland that is still largely unexplored and unexploited. A number of lakes and streams enter the sea at Kosi Bay – a region famous for its exceptional pristine beaches, coral reefs, lakes, swamps, wetlands, woodlands, coastal forests and grasslands.

The iSimangaliso Wetland Park (previously known as Greater St Lucia Wetland Park) is a World Heritage Site and lies on the north-eastern edge of KwaZulu-Natal in the region known as The Elephant Coast. This area is home to a large variety of birds (including a number of rare species) and is the heart of the turtle nesting in South Africa.  Activities include: Turtle tracking, scuba-diving, cruises and whale-watching.
